"Europe should be a frontrunner on the circular economy. I believe passionately in this because the future of the European economy is not in competing on low wages; the future of the European economy is not in competing on wasting finite resources. The future of the European economy is in the circular economy, in reusing, in putting things back into the economic cycle. This means rethinking the way we design, produce, consume and dispose of products."
